I hate those kinds of ads.
No actual opening, just add to the long list of people who've already applied.
They only have 7 ships, and they are well crewed.

Re: NFLanders only - TC 3rd Class for Offshore

There is not a lot of work in Newfoundland right now. There's scatter contract jobs. This job is scheduled to only be 60 days. The previous Reliance job, which was filled by a NLer, was scheduled to only be 3 weeks (and is finished now). Small contract jobs, RARELY anything permanent. Oil is down, s...

Re: Alfa Laval MAPX313 Purification setup

Flash point for L.O in a purifier isn't the issue with higher temps, like JJ said the flash point is well higher than the purifier setting there. But I understand 'cooking' the oil too high can result in reduced lubricating properties; basically burning it Also at the higher temp the oil can also co...

Re: Alfa Laval MAPX313 Purification setup

A couple of these answers should be in the manual. I would say bump the temp a few Deg C for sure, 85 or so should be okay for lube oil. I don't think cold water should be a problem. The book should have a nice diagram-chart that will show the S.G of the separated fluid and the Dia of the Gravity Di...

Re: Writing Third Class exams

3rds EKG and Motor are simple and straight forward. If you know Reeds General and Motor books it's no problem. I had less sketching than expected, but they were very straight fwd questions. As for calculation exams, I have no experience in a TC setting. I know that I would be inclined to answer any ...

Re: Cdn fleet renewal - Made in China

Look, you don't go buy from Wal Mart when you want quality goods - same thing here. The vessels just don't have the same feeling of 'strength' and quality of machinery. You can look at some pieces and you think for a second "...is that made out of plastic or what?". Their Hulls are now commonly made...

This is a great write up Dieselduck, very reasonable and informative coming from a long time working marine engineer and someone who, as you said, has his finger on the pulse of our industry. Let us know what comes of it, and if you have any other ideas in which more people may provide additional su...

As part of the Canada-Newfoundland Atlantic Accord Implementation Act, first consideration for employment will be given to qualified persons who meet the residency requirements of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Re: Wartsila is the new Volkswagen

the company said its internal audit revealed that 2 percent of its ship engine deliveries may have been affected by the manipulations, and the deviations in the readings were on average 1 percent of fuel consumption.

Re: Wartsila is the new Volkswagen

haha of course; but would an average fuel consumption deviation of 1% spoil the results of the engine's best emission control set up to have it not meat emissions standards? There was no mention of not meeting standards in the article. Maybe they wanted to take control of the news and make it look j...
